I got the AG's on the Ford today. I haven't put the weights back on as I plan to fill these with WWF. I also cheated for filling. The normal valve stems are on the outside under the weights. I drilled and installed new ones just opposite on the inside. Now, when I fill them, I can take the core out of the stems and don't have to worry about 'burping' them. If they are holding air (no bead leaks), I will fill them soon.

The ags sure give it an aggressive look. Good idea on putting valve stems on the outside.

Arti, the stems are normally on the outside. But I have to take the weights off to add air. So the new ones are inside. Shouldn't take long to fill them!

I'll be honest...I don't remember what you had, but I like those on there now :thumbs: The double valve is a good idea, like you said cause of weights, also can work for better access on duals.

Those look great! I am going to pick up a couple sets of ags soon one for each of my tractors along with some 24-12-12 turfs . But need to widen up a few sets of rims to 10" . ;)

Not sure if it would help if you had tubes, other than letting the air out from around the tube. I know i will have to have the stem at 12 o'clock to add air, though.
What surprised me was these weigh the same as the turfs I took off. I thought with them being 4-ply, they would weigh more. But they both are 37 lbs (unfilled). I'll add 55 lbs. +/- to that plus 75 lbs. of weights. So I will have 165-170 lbs. per side of weight. Should make those AG's dig in.

P.S. I have another set of brake rotors, too!

10.50's. They measure a bit over 9" wide at the tread.
